Straddling Time ... Straddling Seasons......



Equal Day ...... Equal Night


Autumnal Equinox ... balanced in time for just a moment

For us in the Southern Hemisphere it's a time for saying goodbye
to a long hot Summer and welcoming a softer season
as John Yeats penned it " A season of mists and  mellow fruitfullness"
A season when we look forward to
trees ablaze with colour - crisp night air and the earth resplendent
with the rich aroma of fertile soil.


This is my contribution to
City Daily Photo's Theme Day
"Equinox"

What a brilliant visualisation of the 'mellow fruitfulness' that I look forward to every year at this time.

Such a wonderful image that straddles the horizon, Dianne. Thank you very much for contributing a post to the Festival of the Equinox.

I love the wording Mellow Fruitfulness. Any thing as long as it is not Hot,

An exquisite realisation of the theme. It looks cooler there in the evening after a hot day in the late summer. I love the Yeats quote too!
